HCK invited us for a chinese tea appreciation session at his home on 4.3.2018.

we had 5 different tea-

1 龙井
2 碧螺春
3 单从
4 兰贵人
5 普洱

I left before 普洱 so did not taste that…🙂🙏..had to cook 3pax family dinner this evening.🙂

HCK’s tea pavilion

i am coffee & chinese tea drinker, but i lazy to do 功夫茶at home so used to take big cups of chinese tea..

my sis come often & she always made 功夫茶 at my place & also bought me many茶具 tea sets, including very useful travelling ones.

so these days i do 功夫茶  often enough & sometimes for my friends too, but really limited to 4pax.

a bit blur phto, but we all enjoyed the tea & the chats…

兰贵人

on the tea,

1 龙井 was somehow too light? didn’t really feel much of it…
2 碧螺春 was quite popular, every one liked it..though it is a much cheaper green tea than 龙井 and quite often served in jiangsu area..
3 单从 is a stronger tea & can serve 冲 many rounds..
4 兰贵人 is a very fragrant flowery tea, no need to 洗茶wash the tea, and can serve right away…i had a very good one like 20 years ago given by some business contacts in shanghai & after that did not manage to buy it..after HCK 
‘s tea tasting i asked my relatives in china…they said it is very expensive…
5 普洱 – i missed this part as i had to leave to prepare 3pax dinner at home...anyway, nowadays they sell small one serving 普洱  mini tea cakes, and i take that often enough, very smooth tea like XO.

very fun afternoon for all of us, sharing & enjoying the company & little joys in life.
